Deepsend Records - MISERICORDIA (Swedish Black Metal)

This is a band of a rare calibre. Misericordia knows how to play real black metal - the blistering kind, reminiscent of Marduk, Sammath and 1349, while tempering it with atmosphere and melodies of Dark Funeral and Dissection respectively. This is a very well-rounded release, one that leaves no stone unturned in expressing the art. From start to finish, this album is vicious, carrying an undercurrent of melodies, and is dynamic in its expression. Black metal albums aren't made like this these days. Too much is sacrificed for the sake of cult or commercial appeal. This one satisfies fully.
